Keeping our hearts strong and healthy involves physical care as well as emotional and spiritual care. Our physical care includes eating right for our type, taking targeted and specific supplements that support cardiovascular health and getting regular exercise. These three elements provide the cornerstone for healthy heart function and are an essential investment in our long-term health and well-being. As Peter wrote in the Cardiovascular Book
, “Your heart is an amazingly resilient organ. Alexis Carrel, the famous experimental biologist who received the 1912 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, concluded that, given an optimum supply of nutrients and oxygen, the heart is capable of functioning perfectly for over two centuries.”* Two centuries. Take some time and ponder that!
